Oscar-winning actress Sally Field followed comedian Samantha Bee’s apology Thursday with a tweet suggesting that her initial attack had not gone far enough.
Saying that she liked Bee “a lot,” Field appeared to claim that the word she had used to describe first daughter Ivanka Trump was too good for her.
I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a cunt.
Cunts are powerful, beautiful, nurturing and honest.

Bee apologized for her comments in a tweet just an hour prior to Field’s, admitting, “it was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.” (RELATED: Sam Bee Apologizes For Vulgar Remark About Ivanka Trump)
Thursday was not the first time Field backed someone who made vile attacks on women in the White House. Following Michelle Wolf’s widely-panned performance at April’s White House Correspondents Dinner, Field cheered her as “honest and brilliantly funny.” She then went on to claim that if discourse had gotten ugly, it was President Trump’s fault anyway.
I thought Michelle was honest and brilliantly funny, but what is the point of this dinner, anyway? The ship sailed on decency and a congenial relationship with the press when that man was elected. End the dinner and lets all focus on the work to be done. https://t.co/5NWSGDwvj3
